Got a Defective remote.

I just bought this remote yesterday and upon installing batteries I found that the display just shows jibberish. I have tried new batteries, and doing a master reset. Anyone have any suggestions on a possible fix. Thank you in advance. Chris :-)

It sounds like weak batteries. Have you replaced them?

The display feature suddenly went into some random state and nothing displays except jibberish. How can I fix it?

Try removing the battery for 15minutes or so. Let all circuits decay and then replace battery. This has worked in the past.

If you have turned it back on then this would indicate the receiving module that picks up the infrared signal is not working and has become defective, but I would double check your manual so nothing was over looked.

Open the cover that has the display on it and look at the backside of it.
You will see the display connector. Make sure that the connector for the display is plugged in securely, then turn the machine back on.

Remote does not work

try replacing the battery.

What I have done is open up the case and make sure all the water is dry. If not, use a hair dryer to dry it clean, being careful not to 'overheat' the unit in case you burn up any chips on the board.

If this does not work, replace it.
